What is the maintenance schedule for the 2010 Ford Fusion?

Here’s Why 2010 Ford Fusion Scheduled Maintenance Matters

When it comes to your Ford Fusion, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. With the right maintenance at the right time, your Fusion has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. So, you want to care for your car, but you’re not sure when to get certain services. Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your Fusion, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 2010 Ford Fusion!

Ford knows your vehicle inside and out (they made it, after all!), so they’ve designed this schedule with your car’s unique needs in mind. Driving conditions, climate variations, and other variables can affect which scheduled maintenance services you’ll need; however, there’s a good chance that your vehicle’s recommended maintenance services will include oil changes, tire rotations, brake pad replacement, filter changes, and fluid checks and exchanges. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your Fusion running for longer, keep you safer on the road, and help you avoid expensive repairs caused by 2010 Ford Fusion problems later.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Ford Fusion Running Newer, Longer

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 2010 Ford Fusion and an expert technician will begin by performing a Courtesy Check. This Courtesy Check can establish a baseline of what may need to be addressed during your service appointment. Each Courtesy Check includes a free battery test and an inspection of your Fusion's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 2010 Ford Fusion? If your current battery is more than three years old, it may be time for a replacement (batteries typically last somewhere between three and five years). Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your Fusion may need a replacement battery sooner. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your Ford Fusion battery. While you could wait until your battery fails and you hear the dreaded "click," you're better off replacing it before then! If you keep driving on a battery that can't hold a charge, you run the risk of being stranded when your battery finally gives out (and no one can predict where that might be!). Your Ford Fusion could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 2010 Ford Fusion engine. See Ford's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 2010 Fusion in the chart at the top of this page. Keep in mind that your oil change interval could be different given your driving style and climate. A Firestone Complete Auto Care technician will be happy to help you determine the best oil change frequency for your car’s needs. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 2010 Ford Fusion.

Routine upkeep for your Ford Fusion suspension and steering system can help you keep control of your vehicle at all times (plus, it can make for a smoother ride!). When it comes to steering and suspension, you want to catch small problems before they turn into big (and expensive) ones. You can count on Firestone Complete Auto Care’s trained technicians to inspect this system and, if needed, provide Ford Fusion steering and suspension services including wheel alignment, strut replacement, power steering fluid changes, ball joint lubrication, and wheel bearing replacement. Prevent damage or premature wear and tear on your Ford Fusion's steering system with regular maintenance.

Without routine Ford Fusion maintenance, you (and your engine) could quickly lose your cool when there's a problem on the road–especially if that problem is an overheated engine or broken A/C. Don’t sweat it, though! Our technicians can take care of those issues, too. At Firestone Complete Auto Care, we have what it takes to provide top-notch service for your Ford Fusion engine heating and cooling systems, as well as your air conditioning. Is it time to replace the radiator in your Ford Fusion? We can take care of that. Got a funny smell coming from your A/C? We’re on it.

Questions About 2010 Ford Fusion Maintenance

Take an active role in maintaining your 2010 Ford Fusion. Get answers to common Ford Fusion maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • When should I have Ford Fusion alignment checked? You know your Ford Fusion better than anyone else, so you’ll know if something doesn’t feel right while driving. Have your alignment checked (and adjusted if necessary) as soon as you notice a pulling steering wheel to prevent suspension damage or uneven tire wear.
  • When does my Ford Fusion need high mileage oil? Got 75,000+ miles on the odometer? Consider high mileage motor oil. High mileage oil is formulated to address the specific problems encountered by high mileage vehicles, or those with more than 75,000 miles. It can help reduce oil consumption, smoke, and emissions from older Ford Fusion engines.
  • Can Ford dashboard warning lights wait? Because there might be a problem under the hood. Those warning lights are there for a reason! As soon as you notice that one’s illuminated, take your Ford Fusion to Firestone Complete Auto Care so you can address any small problems long before they worsen.
